UGA Eidson Distinguished Professor in American Literature LeAnne Howe

Native and indigenous writers converged on the University of Oklahoma campus 25 years ago to celebrate and showcase their works. At that time, event organizers created the Returning the Gift literary festival to ensure that these writers would continue to support each other and foster new literary talent year after year.  This year’s festival will take place on Oct. 8-11 at the University of Oklahoma College of Continuing Education complex in Norman, Oklahoma, and UGA Eidson Distinguished Professor in American Literature LeAnne Howe (Choctaw) will read during the first day of the festival.
